There are probably billions of galaxies and each galaxy has billions of stars and God only knows what else.  And they’re all expanding.

I don’t think any human mind can really grasp what that means. And we don’t know if there are other planets like this in the universe but ours happens to be perfectly placed in its universe around the sun so that it’s not too hot and not too cold and it’s not too browbeaten by stray material from the universe.

In any case, that sort of describes the active evolution in which the creative energy of That Which Is, of the God that we call the Creator, brought this little universe and this planet in just the right place at the right time so that life could emerge on it.

La Energía Creativa en la Evolución Activa de este Universo

Probablemente hay billones de galaxias y cada galaxia tiene billones de estrellas y Dios sabe qué más. Y todo se está expandiendo. No creo que ninguna mente humana pueda comprender realmente lo que eso significa. Y no se si hay otros planetas como este en el universo, pero el nuestro parece estar perfectamente ubicado en su universo alrededor del sol, de tal modo que no es ni demasiado frio ni demasiado caliente, y no recibe demasiados impactos de los meteoritos que circulan en el universo.

En cualquier caso, de algún modo esto describe la evolución activa por la que la energía creativa de Lo Que Es, del Dios que llamamos Creador, ubicó a este pequeño universo y a este planeta en el lugar indicado y en el momento indicado para que pudiera surgir la vida en él.
